Knee Probs

My knees are being such jerks.

All I want to do is get back into shape, and here they are actin fools. Rude. I don't know if it's an IT band issue, or what, but that's what I suspect. Who knew someone so out of shape could get an OVERUSE injury? This is probably the only time in my life I will ever have a problem with exercising TOO much.

I took both Sunday and Monday off from the gym, so this morning I rolled out of bed excited to head that way. (Not sure who I am, but ya know.) I figured I'd do elliptical without a whole lot of resistance. Just get them limbered up, etc etc. I did 30 minutes, and my knees felt... weird. Not painful, just not normal. After that, I did 15 minutes on the sit-back stationary bike. Then, I foam rolled. Considering, I didn't know what the heck I was doing, I'm impressed I managed to figure it out with minimal stupidage.

More than anything, I just want to keep up my habit of going to the gym and focusing on fitness. Because when I get out of that mode? Bring on the junk food, cause I'm leaving this wagon altogether.

So, like I said, my knees are jerks.
